Connacht in FAI Schools U18 Boys’ Interprovincial Tournament

Today (10th Nov) 64 of the top players in Irish schools line out for their respective provinces to compete in the U18 Boys’ Interprovincial tournament. We are delighted and proud to say we have 3 current students representing Connacht in the tournament.

The Interprovincial series will be the first step in the process of selecting the FAI Schools International 18 man squad which will compete in the Centenary Shield competition.
The 2017/18 campaign will see the Irish away to Wales and England in their opening fixtures and home to their counterparts Northern Ireland and Scotland.

Donal Higgins, Ronan Manning and Adam Rooney are representing Connacht in the FAI Schools U18 Interprovincial Tournament. Donal is currently in 5th year and both Ronan and Adam are in 6th year. Connacht last took home the title in 2013, we hope 2017 will be another successful year. We wish them and their team-mates the very best of luck.
